Social Entrepreneurship is one of eight nonprofit management courses in the Learning Institute Certificate Series. The course presents standard nonprofit concepts, vocabulary, and strategies through a 90-minute video presentation. A downloadable participant guide reinforces the presentation and contains worksheets and an Organizational Assessment Tool to assist with post-training implementation. The course takes from six to nine hours to complete.
This donation allows one student to enroll in this course. The course is available online to this student for one year.
Benefits for Organizations
If you lead or manage a nonprofit organization or public library, you can learn how to:
- Understand the reasons for adopting entrepreneurial strategies
- Evaluate the potential of programs, their social purpose and financial impact
- Identify factors that determine programs' success
- Use "The ESP Grid®," a strategic planning tool for identifying which programs have earned-income potential and which are candidates for either expansion or elimination
The course was prepared by Jerr Boschee, Founder and Executive Director of The Institute for Social Entrepreneurs and a Senior Fellow at The Northland Institute. He spent the past 20 years as an advisor to social entrepreneurs in the United States and abroad. The course moderator is Joan Cybela, a professor and distance education specialist with the University of Wisconsin-Extension.
